If the root issue is a growing number of regions, why not control that
instead of a way to control the Reducer count? You could, for example,
raise the split-point sizes for HFiles, to not have it split too much,
and hence have larger but fewer regions?
Given that you have 10 machines, I'd go this way rather than ending up
with a lot of regions causing issues with load.
